Product Spotlight


New Orvis Clearwater Rods and Reels!

The new Clearwater® Rod Series is not just a cosmetic facelift, but a complete overhaul from the ground up by our Vermont rod designers. Everything has changed except the value. It's still the best fly rod you can buy for the money, but with a significant upgrade in performance and looks in a comprehensive series that covers every angler from small stream addicts to Skagit slinging two-handers. Each rod was designed with a purpose-built profile and action to handle the kind of fishing the rod model would be traditionally used for, from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and fast-action big game rods.

A great new die-cast reel design with a stealthy matte-gray powder-coat finish, the Clearwater Large Arbor is still the best performance-to-value reel in the industry. With a powerful inline, Rulon®-to-stainless, stacked disc drag that can hold its own with high-performance machined reels, the new Clearwater Large Arbor is easily converted to either left- or right-hand retrieve and has a positive click drag knob for consistent settings every time. Whether you're looking for your first large arbor or want a spare reel or two in the bag, this modern and updated Clearwater Large Arbor can handle anything a machined reel can and looks awesome doing it. Size II (4-6 wt.), Size IV (7-9 wt.)
